How to diagnose bleeding disorder?

Your doctor may perform one or more of the following tests to determine if a bleeding disorder is hereditary or acquired.
– A complete blood count (CBC) is a test that counts the number of blood cells and platelets in your blood. If your platelet count is excessively low, you may have a platelet disorder rather than a clotting factor disorder.
– A partial thromboplastin time (PTT) test, also known as an activated PTT (PTT), is used to determine how long blood takes to clot. It can aid in determining whether certain clotting factors are present.
– Another test to determine how long it takes blood to clot is a prothrombin time (PT) test. It measures clotting factors that the PTT test does not.
– A mixing test to help identify whether the bleeding problem is caused by antibodies that prevent clotting factors from working properly, as in autoimmune disorders or acquired hemophilia.
– Von Willebrand factor (VWF) tests are used to determine the quantity of von Willebrand factor present if the factors are functioning properly, and the form of VWD you have.
– Clotting factor tests, also known as factor assays or coagulation panels, are used to assess if certain clotting factors are absent or present at lower levels than normal, which might indicate the kind and severity of the bleeding disease. If you have extremely low amounts of clotting factor VIII, for example, you may have hemophilia A.
– Antigen and activity assays for factor XIII to detect factor XIII deficiency.
– Genetic testing is to see if any specific genes are responsible for the bleeding disorder.
